    The Scottish Gaelic Tattoo Handbook von McEwan, Emily

    Authentic Words and Phrases in the Celtic Language of Scotland

    The Scottish Gaelic language is growing in popularity due to the media phenomenon of "Outlander" as well as people exploring their ancestry. Many people want a tattoo with a Gaelic word or phrase to tell a story about their Scottish or Celtic roots. But most people can't find the accurate information about Gaelic that is needed to get a good tattoo. They try to do their own translations instead and end up with embarassing mistakes. With this book, Gaelic specialist in Nova Scotia provides a guide to how to choose an appropriate word or phrase for a tattoo in the Scottish Gaelic language. The book contains a glossary of nearly 400 authentic Gaelic words and phrases, history and description of the Gaelic language, examples of real-life Gaelic tattoos that went wrong, advice on how to avoid common mistakes, and insights on how to incorporate Gaelic words into a tattoo design that honors and supports the culture. The book focuses on language and does not contain artwork. This book is for tattoo enthusiasts and anyone with an interest in Celtic, Scottish, and Gaelic language and culture.
